    Default Home Made Paper Tuning Stand

    I know most of you have the PVC version paper tuning stand but I did not have one. So I begin to think and look around and had a Summit Viper box that I had kept for a while in the basement. Yep I cut out each side and got some old wrapping paper and there I had a quick no cost paper tuner. Tried it out and it works like a charm. I just had to rest it on some boxes to make it tall enough but it works for no more than I will have to use it.

    That is a great idea! I may just have to try making one as well.

    I did basically the same thing. I took a box and cut out a hole a little smaller than a regular sheet of paper. Taped around the holes with that blue masking tape so when I tape the sheet of paper over the whole the tape falls on the blue masking tape and peels off easy and clean instead of ripping the box. Been using it for years.

    Here is another idea for a paper tuning stand that I threw together many years ago. It hardly takes up any room and can be put together and used in a matter of minutes.

    The first picture shows the stand without paper. I use plain old newspaper and just attach it using big paperclips.



    The next picture shows a closeup of the arrow and paperclip. Just pull two arrows out of your quiver, remove the points, and attach to the boards SI adapters



    The next picture shows a closeup of it attached to a tripod but it could also sit on something else like boxes.



    Next picture shows half of the pine 1x2. I used one 25 inches long with a nut in the middle for the tripod and 2 SI adapters 24 inches apart.



    This picture shows the SI adapter mounted into the 1x2.



    The last picture shows the tripod nut



    So when it is all said and done the only thing you need to store is the 1x2 25 inches long and four paperclips. I like using a tripod because it makes adjusting the height easy and provides a stable platform.

    I am very sorry, I did not mean to steal your thread. I like your idea, since it is quick and cheap and is a piece of equipment you do not need available that offen. I just wanted to offer another idea that is easy to store. Keep sharing your ideas with us.
